Skyscape
« on: January 14, 2008, 07:19:16 pm »
(Some of the things may seem a little wierd, like the "Tiros wars".  But don't worry, I will fill in the history later.  Fall is the island upon which this story takes place.)

Ragged, battle scarred, and tired from the Tiros wars, the humans of Fall made their way up into the North, a barren land filled with ash and wyrms.

Standing upon the barren land, they declared, “Never again!  Never shall those of sand and dust harm us!  Never shall the great behemoths of Earth defeat us!  From henceforth, we stop running, and we stand our ground!  From this moment onward, we rise into the sky, and dominate both this land and the secrets of the universe!  We will return one day, and build a citadel upon the very ground where the Tirona fell!  We will conquer the very forces which govern the universe!”

And with that, they built and planned; researched and discovered.  They churned the landscape with factories and mines built out of sheer determination.  And on the 599th year of their defiance, a magnificent iron city rose into the air, the very force of its engines turning the ground below it into dust!

The city of Golgotha.  A massive construct of iron and steel, its builders used about 1.5 million tons of material to build it.  It stays in the air through the solar sails, which through the ingenious use of wyrm ash and glass particles keeps the city aloft.  It is powered by the Source, silicon particles fused to a state similar to the sun’s surface, and uses the same power which kept the Tirona moving.

The land of Skyscape is barren, cold, and has the fertility of a block of arsenic.  Therefore, most of the people of Skyscape relied on commerce to provide them with necessities, and eventually luxuries.


This is the basic transport of Skyscape.  It has room for five people, can fly up to twice the length of Golgotha without having to turn back for refueling, and can go about as fast as a speedboat.


The ship in the middle is called a Guardian.  About the size of the Hidenburg, these babies can reach speeds similar to those of an airplane, but due to it only being able to go twenty times farther than a Sunsail, many preferred to use lower speeds.


The fastest ship of all, Arach’s pride is a flagship of Arracha, the second city of Skyscape.  It can fly four times farther than a sunsail, and is twice as big as one.


Quote from Exodus:  “Humans are resilient.  What they cannot jump over, they chop down.  When they cannot outrun the sun, they build a vessel fast enough.  Even without their abilities, humans can rule the world one day.”

Note:  Remember the past tense.  Due to some unknown event in the past, all what remains is the huge flying cities, a few spires in lava, and the motionless husks of people who where crystallized when the event occurred.

Not to be rude, you got some brilliant stuff here.

But wouldn't this thread be better suited in the creation corner?

It's not supposed to be for Spore. Neither is it an RP. Hence, it's just an art showcase.

Hmm... Need a artist board or at least alter the creation corner to include both.

Yeah, that would fit perfectly here on GS forums.
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

And yeah, a general artistry/creation board sounds lovely. But uh, I don't think it's gonna happen for a bit since we've got the server woes going on right now and all. Maybe in a week or two.
